“Women, Ecumenism, and Interracial Organizing” is derived from the research Bettye Collier-Thomas conducted for Jesus, Jobs, and Justice: African American Women and Religion (2010). It explores the ways in which black and white ecumenical Protestant women grappled with issues of race and ethnicity in the early twentieth century and how in doing so they contributed to laying the groundwork for the modern civil rights movement.

Bettye Collier-Thomas is Professor in the Department of History at Temple University and a Public Policy Scholar at the Woodrow Wilson Center where she is working on a history of African American women and politics. In addition to the award-winning Jesus, Jobs, and Justice, she is the author of Daughters of Thunder: Black Women Preachers and Their Sermons, 1850-1979 (1998) and the co-editor (with V. P. Franklin) of Sisters in the Struggle: African American Women in the Civil Rights-Black Power Movement (2001).
